A Survey of Indiana Special Libraries and Information Centers.
Kenney, Brigitte L.
Special libraries and information centers in Indiana were surveyed in the fall of 1968. A compilation, with some interpretation of the questionnaire data from 70 libraries, is presented. The major recommendations of this report are improved communications among all librarians and improved bibliographic tools and methods. Specific recommendations include: (1) the State Library should speed-up centralized photocopy service, with messenger delivery in the Indianapolis area, and should centralize billing procedures; (2) the teletype network presently operated by the State Library be extended to include major special libraries; (3) Indianapolis be considered a pilot area for testing a number of ways in which a closer relationship between special libraries and other kinds of libraries might be achieved; and (4) a "Directory of Special Library Resources" be published and disseminated to other types of libraries. An Industrial Information Service is recommended to serve Indiana businessmen and small manufacturers, possibly centered at the Aerospace Research Applications Center, and be sponsored by the Indiana State Library. Further recommendations must await a pooling of all Indiana Library Studies reports. (MF)
